Talent Analysis

Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

Pondering the WHL Western Conference Stretch Drive.

by Glen Crichton

With all the WHL Western Conference teams having twenty games or less on their schedules, heres some speculation on how the season will finish and playoffs will play out. These are solely the thoughts and ponderings of this writer and may not be accurate, however with the stretch run just underway, thought it would be fun to put my choices out to provoke some debate. Here goes!

While the Cougars will likely play better in the playoffs, I’m not sure Thompson or Stanton are handling the pressure of a stretch run very well. Thompson was great against Kamloops in the recent loss, but I’m not sold. Hamhuis really is the glue that holds the entire Cougar back end together and he at some point this year is going to start slowing down and having some off nights, which appears is beginning to happen. He was brilliant in the first game against Kamloops last weekend, but in the second game was average by his standards, coughing up the puck, not as effective moving the puck and not as physical. When caught out of position didn’t appear to have a lot of gas to get back either IMO. They need scoring and I’m not sure even the addition of Foster will remedy that problem. Likely to finish third in B.C. Division and could slide as low as fourth with a first round exit IMO.

Kelowna will go as far as Bendera can take them and his return to the line up this weekend will be a tonic for a lot the Rockets current ailments. When on his game, Bendera can win games on his own which might be what the Rockets need to gain some confidence. If Shane can backstop the Rockets to a couple wins Read more»

Blades Enjoying the Home Cooking

by Tyler Neisz

the Saskatoon Blades who recently enjoyed a four game winning streak,
including 3 in a row at home slipped a notch recently this past weekend and
were in danger of falling into the east division basement. The Blades were
winless in a three game in three night Alberta road trip. On Friday, the
Blades fell behind early to the Medicine Hat Tigers by a score of 4-0 and
could never really get back into the game. The Blades got to within 2 goals
on a pair of tallies by WHL eastern conference player of the month Justin
Kelly but that would be as close as the Blades would come losing 5-3 to the

Saturday night the Blades were in Lethbridge to play a Canes team
who has really beaten up on the Blades so far this year outscoring them 20-8
in three previous meetings. This time the Blades were able to stay close
but not close enough losing 4-2. Jeremy Jackson salted the game away with
his 26th of the season with 1:13 remaining in the game. With a 2 game
losing streak going entering Red Deer, the Blades could have easily folded
with a pair of home games on the horizon but that wasn’t the case.

the Blades looked past the fact the Rebels had won 11 in row and looked past
the fact they are defending Memorial Cup champs. The Blades stayed close
all night long and forced OT but lost 3-2 in overtime. The trip wasn’t
exactly a success for the Blades but they faired pretty well on the road
against some very tough teams. The Blades still only have 1 win vs Central
Division teams this season.
